I have never seen a TE610 with training wheels before.

I have never seen training wheels that were $650

Wait, what training wheels??





With an 8 year old rear tire I had a few fun slides today. Wish I already knew the techniques..

Found some decent deals on SM610's locally. I have a smr450 2006, and it is a trooper.

How do they do at say 75-80 cruising on the freeway? I know my 450 wants to putt at about 70 is 6700 rpm.

Also are the 2008+ 610's immune from the keyway crank thingy coming loose? What about clutch basket problems? Do the 08+ eat timing chains like crazy?

630's are nice but they were going OTD for 6k and people are asking 7! What the hell kind of bike appreciated.

An Emphatic no! You gotta check it.

My 08 ate the washers.

Again, my 08 ate the first chain at about 6k . The second lasted quite a bit longer but it's due again.

Just thought I'd send an update. I think my pickup on the brake assembly wasn't close enough to the magnet on the disc. I filed it smooth and screwed it in a bit closer and all is well.

Btw, I finally had a chance to look at my power up mod and my blinking neutral light turned out to be that the resister wasn't hooked up correctly. I soldered up the resister using tabs and plugged it in correctly and WOW! What a difference! This thing has almost too much power after riding my little Ninja 250 as my daily commuter! Will have to get used to it again this spring and summer.

sprocket recommendations?

My stock rear sprocket bit the dust today, having broken a couple of teeth on it. So I think I'm going to just replace the whole shebang. I know dropping down a tooth in the front, to 14, seems to be an almost universal recommendation. What about the rear sprocket? Stock is a 45, I think? Go up a couple? Leave it be?

Also, anyone have good or bad experiences with the Kush sprockets? It's supposed to emulate a rear cush hub? They have a 41, a 45, and a 50.

I use Ironman sprockets on my DS bikes. Seem to last forever. Went up to 47T on the 610. 14/17 combo is perfect for me to do dirt roads and commute. If I was going to do more than a few hours of 70+ I have a 15T I can swap on. If there is a lot of trail planned I will put a 13T on and be able to use 2nd gear more. The 47T has given me the flexible solution. In reality for commuting and Moab, and general DS rides the 14/47T is all I use, it has been a very long time since ever chaining the front sprocket, it is a good compromise, power in 6th without winding it out.

My opinion is that while that's better than nothing, it that can't possibly be as effective as an actual cush hub.

I bought a new set of Desert Race tires Friday and will be pulling the trigger on a rear wheel with a Rad cush hub Monday. My stock sprocket is still good, so I'll be moving it over with the disc, but a Dirt Tricks is definitely in the bike's future.

I've tried a bunch of combos, stock 15/45 is not for me. Went to 14/47 then 13/47 (liked that). Then 15/49 and that was good, but put the 14/49 on and love it!! Still have all the sprockets and when it really nasty ill use 13/49, but I highly recommend going big in the back and staying at 14 or 15 up front. 13 puts you past the right RPMs for good power to quickly. Please let us know how the Kush sprocket holds up. I've heard dirt beats them up pretty bad.

You can still pull well into the high 70 mph range with the 14/49

I decided to get the 14/47 combo from DirtTricks, along with one of their chains. Maybe I'll do a Kush sprocket at some point later, or maybe I'll just wait 'till Taranis reports back on his experience with the RAD hub. My front 15 is still in good shape, so if I need that for any long freeway rides, I can slap that on.

I use iron man rear and OEM front! The OEM last better than all the others I've tried. The iron man sprockets are really durable!!

I have been waiting to hear how the new bonding process for two years now.
I just did a Google and it appears nothing has been released, so I suspect they haven't been successful in building something that will hold up. The Kush website has said out of stock for a long time.

I've put Ironman rear sprockets on my 630, 610, and 310 and a couple of big XR's and a 525 - they're just about impossible to wear out.

Is there enough range in the chain adjusters to swap a 13 front to a 17 w/o adding a link?
